the local i was talking about who did well at nats is the same who mods engines that told me NO

he is getting pretty damn good at his mods and they dont look like motormans

in fact he says most of his mods are unable to be seen

i am hoping my smeltz sirio will give an edge over him

we have a few pretty fast guys here and they are just getting better

there are some pictures of my car in the mtx-3 thread

In another forum you said that you're car weighed about 1775 grams, is that with or without the body?

with body and uncutt tires no transponder (cant find personals anywhere i need 2 anyone who knows where to get them)

also that was before i put the sirio on it had the heavier mr-12 engine on it then

i can also cut some more of the body away but i left it alone for the pictures but i dont like to let body get close to the tires

I haven't a problem with you at all but then again if you do indeed sponsor Tennessee with your work....then he represents you....correct?

I can think of plenty of sponsored racers that have hissy fits, throw stuff, yell at people on the stand and generally act like horses pitutes. But that is not Tennesee Brown Or Brad Toffelmire. When they start throwing their cars and radios like I have seen by major league guys then I will have a problem. But you will not for a minute find me criticizing them for protecting my interests. If they didn't they would not be driving for me. So it depends on how you look at it. They are approachable and will give you the advice you are looking for without being condesending or treating you like you are a subpar newb. Obviously youve never been to a really big event and seen the pro guys go off. But everyone worships the ground they race on.
Yep,I've been to a few big races and seen what your talking about....but I've never seen a sponsored driver come on this OPEN forum to take stabs of someones geographical location...
